What We're Drinking

2000 Labégorce, Margaux $39.99

A great value in Bordeaux! This bottle is mature enough to drink now, but has time in hand if you want to keep it in the cellar for the future. We love it for its laid back elegance and classic balance. A must try for your next nice steak dinner.

Spanish & Portuguese Wine News: 

By: Joe Manekin | K&L Spanish & Portuguese Wine Buyer

Go Niners! Go Ravens! Go team!   So as some of you may know, I'm originally from the other (Chesapeake) Bay Area and will be rooting accordingly. That said, both teams have had terrific seasons and I'm just looking forward to a well played, hard fought superbowl and Har-Bowl II (remember the result of the first Har-Bowl, right?)  

Team allegiances aside, here are a few Superbowl picks that all of us here, as well as many of you I'm sure, can agree on:  

2011 Isastegi Sagardo Naturala (Natural Cider) Pais Vasco - $9.99

http://www.klwines.com/detail.asp?sku=1111400  

 

2008 Cantiga Crianza Rioja - $14.99

http://www.klwines.com/detail.asp?sku=1121685  

 

2008 Asenjo y Manso Crianza Ribera del Duero - $17.99

http://www.klwines.com/detail.asp?sku=1121758  

Good night, and good luck!  

Salud, Joe

Brick's Beer News: The K&L Beer is Coming!

By Bryan Brick | K&L Beer Buyer

Hey All,

Lots of pieces of info here so bear with me.

First of all I will be hosting another event at Gourmet Haus Staudt on Saturday, July 28th at 6pm. For those of you that came last time it will be the same story. For those of you that did not here is the scoop. Volker, Maryanne and the gang at GHS are letting me take over 6 of the taps to pour some weird, unusual and delicious beers for you all. No need to make reservations just swing on by and will have some great beers to pour all of you. As of right now the following beers are confirmed:

Upright Offen Weisse—A totally delicious wheat beer that doesn’t have so much of the yeasty/banana flavor

Mikkeller K:rlek—An awesome Pale Ale with multiple hops, wheat malt and oat flakes

Æppeltrow Winery “Orchard Oriole” Perry—Part of their “Songbird” collection, this is bone dry, tannic and all of the pears come from their estate orchard.

These really are reason enough to swing by but we will be pouring even more cool stuff, I’ll keep you posted.

Second - good news! - the K&L Beer is coming. We are beginning the label approval process and getting it in bottles soon. For those of you that don’t know about this it is a beer that Rodger Davis, formerly of Drake’s and Triple Rock and soon to be of his own brewery—Faction, made for us. It is a Belgian Strong Ale that he added some wild yeast to and aged in our first Buffalo Trace barrel. It is really tasty stuff. I’ll keep you all posted on its ETA.

Thirdly we have a massive amount of new cool beer and cider. Here is the list, below. Rememer, you can browse our complete beer inventory in real time on KLWines.com.
